Every year more than a thousand young people across Connecticut benefit from the presence of a Big Brother or Big Sister in their lives who sees, recognizes, and empowers their potential.


We create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.


At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Connecticut, we partner with volunteers, parents, and families to create one-to-one mentoring relationships that defend, inspire, and empower the potential of Connecticut youth. Learn more about how you can help us create more life-changing relationships through our youth mentoring opportunities.
